NEXT SUNDAY – Special Collection for the Retired & Sick Priests of our Diocese. We have thirteen retired priests, still active in prayer and witness. We remember many of them with great love and affection. One is living in Rome, five in houses throughout the diocese, three in parish presbyteries, two at the Residence of the Little Sisters and two from the mission in Chile. We thank God for the gift of these priests and keep them in our prayers. In 2021 our two special collections and Friends Campaign raised £47,513 which represents 33% of our expenditure of £144,938, a shortfall of £97,425, which was met by the Sick & Retired Priests Investment income.


ILL: Rosemary McInally, Dorothy McColl, Arthur Kennedy, Paul Kearney, Mark O’Donnell and for all who have asked for our prayers in the parish family: those at home and their carers, those in hospital and residential homes, including the staff, and for all suffering in mind and body, especially those alone: Lord, bless them with your grace.
